The organism : a holistic approach to biology derived from pathological data in man by Kurt Goldstein ( Book )
40 editions published between 1939 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book notes that an understanding of the relations of mind and body is difficult due to many seemingly paradoxical facts. The controversies over localization of functions, reflex and organismal theories, mechanism and vitalism express the inconsistency of the results of investigations. This author considers the problem of neural and behavioral organization from a broadly biological point of view. Goldstein's investigations of visual disorders and of aphasia revealed fundamental disturbances of thought and personality of which the recognized symptoms are only a superficial expression. From these studies has grown the conception of behavior as a result of a unified activity of the organism, which is the theme of this book. The data presented go far toward a solution of the apparent contradictions between the facts of elementary nervous activity and those derived from the study of cerebral function by showing that functions of parts are dependent in large measure upon the total setting in which they occur. The author's interpretation avoids many of the difficulties of both reflexology and vitalism and provides an alternative view for those whose scientific aims are satisfied neither by extreme oversimplification of facts nor by postulation of forces which cannot be investigated.

Aftereffects of brain injuries in war, their evaluation and treatment; the application of psychologic methods in the clinic by Kurt Goldstein ( Book )

"From my own experience of the end results of war head injury, gained in a British military hospital for head injuries for over eighteen months of the present conflict, I can very strongly recommend the present volume. In it Dr. Goldstein sets out clearly the experience gained in rehabilitation after head injury in the last world war. His methods have stood the test of time, and with little adaptation have again been found the most successful approach to the problem. His book provides a survey of the subject which is unique and eminently practical. It is an excellent starting point for the many--surgeon, physician, neurologist, psychiatrist, and general practitioner alike--who will find themselves expected to assess or treat such cases at one or another stage. Apart from these considerations, this book is remarkable as a study in the application of practical psychologic methods in the medical clinic, a subject which is attracting increasing attention with the realization that it is essential to the complete understanding of the effects of many types of "organic" disease or injury. In this, Dr. Goldstein displays his especial genius and an achievement of no mean proportions"--Foreword. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
